principles well, we're going to lose election after election. third, we must embrace the changing demographics of america, not by diluting our principles, but by reaching out to all americans. if there are those in the republican party who cannot subscribe to the principles, let them go their way. >> we should reach out to everybody, but if you don't agree with what i say get! are you sure you're going to reach out to all? >> american way means we don't take hard-earned money from your family's pocket to provide a better standard of living to those who are no willing to work. cenk: yeah! let's reach out except those bums, i don't want them anywhere near us. bold new ideas by the republicans. let's bring in joe williams, the deputy chief of the boston globe's washington bureau. excellent guest on "the young turks." joe, how are you my friend? >> good to see you again cenk. cenk: great to see you. let me give you more fresh ideas. i'm going to play a clip from marco rubio and let's see all the wonderful new ideas they have here. >> what i sense from a lot of people i've talked to is

american citizens on american sail. the issue isn't the technology. the method does not change the law. cenk: is that a sufficient answer andrew? by the way, does it make it that much of a difference if they can execute u.s. citizens abroad. is it any better to execute you when you go to vacation in london, instead of here in the u.s.? >> that's a key a very important point to make, is that i think the fight that rand paul didn't focus on enough is this had is not just about striking on u.s. soil. i think he may be outside of the united states, but it's not just ok when it's outside of the soil. there's american citizens who deserve a trial especially a 16-year-old, the son that associated with no one that happened to be terrorist. effectively, he was saying no, president obama has never used drone strikes on america which is not answering the question, really. it's frustrating, but at the same time, you know... cenk: right now colonel davis the thing that gets me is when people say all the time in defending president obama's drone strikes and use the republican's defense of bush using

doma and that will have no impact on whether states that don't recognize gay marriages have to change their law. they will not have to change their law -- >> cenk: but the federal government would? >> the federal government would in terms of its recognition, yes. >> cenk: on the federalism argument is it the same as the equal protection argument? >> if the court finds that it has jurisdiction and so it gets to the merits either the federalism merits or the equal protection merits, then yes that would be a ruling that the law -- assuming that there are five justices who agree that the law is unconstitutional for one reason or another. the interesting question would be whether there are five justices who could agree on why the law is underconstitutional. it might be if justice kennedy is only willing to -- to write an opinion that deals with federalism, you might have four justices saying it is unconstitutional because of equal protection one justice saying it is unconstitutional because of federalism so it would be unconstitutional, but it would leave in limbo some of the equal protect

we capture among the republicans that apparently are willing to change, given enough political pressure? >> well, that's a good question, because i don't think that cantor ever let the senate, any kind of version that the senate had passed of this bill up for a vote in the first place, so we don't actually know if it could have gotten a republican, the 80 something republican votes that it did get if it had ever gotten to the floor. the majority of republicans did vote against it again so i don't really think that they're for it. i think what happened was the new senate bill does have a different approach to immigrants tan the first senate bill that they passed, so they did kind of give them a little on that, but not very much. i think it was enough cover to just sort of let the bill pass. cenk: that's interesting. the audience should know, 138 members voted against this in the house all 138 were republicans, of course and all 138 were men. i'm not sure they really solved their problem with female voters with this, but at least we made some progress. amanda, thank you for joini

just red state americans hoping that everybody thinks like us. we have to change that mindset bring conservatism to different people and bring different solutions to the diversity of america, not just what we're used to or comfortable with. cenk: interesting stats on elections from 1968 to today from 1968 to 1988, republicans had a great run, part of this in southern strategy and won five out of six of the presidential elections. from 1992 to 2012, they lost four out of six elections and lost electoral votes significantly. as you look at that and see this party that just simply by their own admission have tremendous difficulty reaching out to minors gays, women to the young, you look at those numbers, do they have any hope? >> i think the reason that they've been lose ago lot is they've sort of lost their thumb on the pulse of the culture. in the 1980's, there was sort of that reagan culture since then, they've lost their way and haven't reached out to try to appeal to young people at all. one thing in this autopsy, they acknowledged that they're terrible at reaching out to gays. th

choice that would change the way they're perceived around the world now? >> well, i have two suggestions. one is to elect the dalai lama the new pope. that would clean things up overnight. it would change all the power struggles, and he wouldn't even have to show up very much, maybe three or four times a year give a talk from the balcony and then the whole thing can become the museum that it is. sell extra paintings and give money to the poor. who is looking to the van vatican today for spiritual or moral leadership? no one. that's my first choice. the second choice would be the sister from eerie pennsylvania, who is in the spirit who was declared a saint this year. overnight they would get a new impression because they would prove that it's not just a boy's club after all. they would recognize the intelligence spirituality of a woman. sister joan chinister. that's the only two ways that they could redo their image in a manner that really matters. i think dalai lama and sister joan represent authentic spiritual and moral values. >> michael: thank you fox, you seem like a dece

about it. rashad, you guys at color of change are terrific in pushing people in the right direction. how do you do that from the outside in this particular issue. >> i think the leadership that ultraviolet are showing, mayor bloomberg's group and others, it is critical that we have to hold politicians on both sides of the aisle accountable. our friends are the ones who stand with us when we are the most challenged. we have seen the ravages that gun violence has had on our communities. mr. law pierre talks about money and politics and bloomberg's money, what he fails to talk about is the way the nra has carried the water for the gun industry for years and has moved their money into the pockets of politician politicians who support them and has went after politicians who don't, and what we have is organizations like color of change and ultra violent and others, and we need to cull those democrats who come into our communities and let them know they are not going to have our support if they are in the back pocket of the nra and the gun industry. >> rashard let me stay with you for a se

that it is illustrated and indicative of the national movement that we've seen, this sweeping change in polls if you will of support for same-sex marriage. the vast majority of reporters there today that were closest to the supreme court were same-sex marriage supporters. that binges, there was a march of opponents to same-sex marriage and at one point they marched right by supporters of it. they were i have notes apart but worlds away in their belief. it was perhaps indicative of where the country is and how deeply rooted some supporters and opponents are on the issue and how contentious the debate can become. >> how about chief justice john roberts. there's some idea that he might swing in favor of gay rights. is there any indication one way or another from him today? >> you know, i was speaking with some attorneys after the oral arguments concluded today and what they told me is that it's always tricky to place a bet on how the supreme court will decide. we saw this with the obamacare decision. what they did say is even if let's say that, you know, they punt the supreme court were
